Residency Rater is designed for fourth year medical students entering family medicine. The program allows students to record impressions, strengths, and weaknesses of different residency programs. As medical students consider family medicine programs, they may choose residencies from the application's list. Users rate each program on a scale of 1 to 5 in a wide variety of different criteria. Criteria are divided into categories including work environment, curriculum, clinical interests, residents, faculty, and technology. Users may delete criteria that are not of interest, may 'star' criteria to double the weight of specific interests, and may add additional criteria of their own in each category. When a criterion's rating slider remains at zero, that criteria is not included in the rating. At any time, users may email their ratings and program lists to themselves or others.
